Passenger entry from India to the UAE had been suspended since April 24. However, on Tuesday, authorities in the UAE announced new exemptions to the rule.
Residents who have received both doses of a Covid-19 in the UAE, health workers, teachers, humanitarian cases and those employed in federal and local government agencies are the new exemptions.
The Indian Embassy in the UAE called it a “welcome news” from the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA).
